A cruisetour (sometimes referred to as Land and Sea) gives travelers an opportunity to travel by land and by boat, with two wonderfully different perspectives from which to get to know a region of the world. Cruisetours are most often offered in Alaska, Greece and the Galápagos Islands, but there are also cruisetours in Eastern Canada, France, Brazil and China, among other worldwide locations.
Cruisetours vary in itinerary length and price, with the cruise portion of the tour typically lasting three, four or seven nights. Here are just a few examples of popular cruisetour itineraries that we sell at AffordableTours.com:

Trafalgar’s At Leisure packages allow a traveler to enjoy a visit to one location or area of a country, with some selected sights to see as well as some unscheduled time, where you can relax or wander the locality at your own pace. Unlike the larger, more comprehensive travel packages, the At Leisure packages focus more on one or two local areas and let you explore them in depth.

Some people like to take vacations without a real plan in mind: They want to be open to experiencing whatever strikes them on a given day. That can be a fine, spontaneous way to travel.
On the other hand, having a plan and some guidance can really help you get the most out of your time on a trip. Vacations can’t last forever, and you don’t want to have any days where you don’t have anything to do, or any regrets about missing something special. The “Trafalgar Insider Experience” is a great way to do that, as Trafalgar Tours can provide you with a number of unique experiences, based on their use of local guides and their travel directors’ years of experience.
A First-timer’s Guide To Italy
Italy has long stood as a popular travel destination, and it’s not hard to see why. Italy has a rich cultural history, from the Roman Empire to the Renaissance, and is full of art and architecture that reflects that history. Its Mediterranean climate makes visiting a pleasant experience at almost any time of year. The geography is gorgeous, from the beaches of southern Italy to the hills and mountains of the north.
It’s still possible to have a bad experience if you aren’t prepared, though. While there are plenty of sights to keep you entertained, you don’t want to be miserable because you got ripped off by a taxi or failed to bring adapters to make your electrical devices compatible. It’s very possible if you don’t know what to expect. Here are some basic trips to help you prepare for your first trip to Italy.
